Patrick N. GeorgePartner
Mr. George enjoys amateur photography and submits his photographs regularly to various contests. He views photography much like law. In photography, it is important to have the right settings to ensure that the correct amount of light is on the subject. It does not really matter if the subject of the photograph is backlit or in the shadow, the right settings can be found and a good picture obtained.
When it comes to law and clients, Mr. George uses the same approach. There is almost always a way of obtaining a favorable outcome for the client if the right rules are applied. This sometimes takes time and energy, but the results are worth it. The client can expect that his or her problem will be solved in a way that achieves their goal.
Mr. George received his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University receiving a B.S. in 1996. He obtained his legal education from the University of Idaho College of Law where he received his Juris Doctor Degree, cum laude, in 1999. Prior to joining the firm of Racine Olson in 2001, Mr. George clerked for the Honorable James J. May in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Mr. George was born in Bear Lake, Idaho. He and his wife have three children. Pat and Stacey enjoy long walks, and golfing. As evidenced by his walls in his office, they both enjoy amateur photography.
Of more significance than the various diplomas and certificates on his wall are the many thank you cards he has received over the years. Mr. George believes that a practical approach should be taken in the practice of law to ensure that his clients’ goals are fully realized.
